RunBlogRun opines: Sydney McLaughlin is the WJR for the 400 meter hurdles. Coach Floreal is taking a long term approach in developing this amazing athlete, as she continues to score great PBs at 200 meters and 400 meters. Her 400 meter hurdles will be even better as she develops her leg speed and her hurdling skills. So happy to watch Sydney develop and seem to enjoy her running. She is working with a fantastic coach and program. It is important for athletes to find programs and coaches that work for them, wherever they are.
